Part of the exclusive, xxx-rare and utterly unobtainium R10 set of units, the electrostatic SS-R10 loudspeaker may well be Sony's most rare unit.
Unlike many high-end products, make that ultra-highend outerspace byproducts, the dipole SS-R10 didn't boast a super-conductive membrane from planet Mars or a newly developped directionality controller made after a thorough study of the bat's sonar and wings movements.
Nope - the SS-R10 loudspeaker just took on the (very old) electrostatic theory and pushed it enough to overcome its well-known problems and shortcomings.
Although most high-end units from Sony were developped in a colloquial way, the SS-R10 was a one-man project, as theearlier SS-G333ES and SS-G777ES had been.
But it took a long time, however, a very long time - do click the USER button below for a full Rewind !
